Wash and chop your veggies, then combine in a large bowl.  Add 1/2 habanero pepper if you like it really hot!!! Add cumin, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. yummy! This is always a hit at work.


somtimes the jalepenos are really hot, so in that case i  just use one. i prefer white onions, but that is just my preference. orange habaneros are blazing hot! wear gloves if you are really sensitive. if you don't wear gloves ( i don't) be careful to not touch you around your eyes, even after you wash your hands!! enjoy!
